This wonderful example was in the same hands between 1986 and 1997 before being restored and imported from Dublin to the UK. It was a genuine barn-find which was completely restored from the bare chassis up over a number of years; we believe the work was completed in June 2012.
It is thought to be a genuine ‘matching numbers’ car and the V5 registration document - it was registered here in the United Kingdom in 2014 - shows just one former owner, although this probably only reflects the owners it has had since it was imported from Ireland.
The current owner has only covered around 200 miles since buying the car in 2014; the odometer was reset after the restoration work was completed and now reads just 2,254 miles. Still minty fresh, this is your opportunity to own and drive a fully restored TR2 that looks better, and will be more reliable, than it was when it was new.
The bodywork is in fabulous condition with tight, even panel gaps throughout. It has been professionally resprayed in British Racing Green, a colour that suits the car perfectly. It goes without saying that it has no rust whatsoever.
The chromework, much of which was replated during the restoration, is in very good condition and sets the rest of the car off beautifully, as do the chromed rear wheelarch protectors.
It has also been fitted with a new black fabric hood and full tonneau cover, both of which still look like new. The refurbished wire wheels (painted rather than chromed, which is exactly how they should be finished) are shod with matching tyres, all of which are almost new.
The finished car looks wonderful and we’d encourage potential bidders to view the car for themselves in order to appreciate just how good it looks.…more text on our website
